#WeekendCoffeeShare – Running Late Again

cappuccino on tableIf we were having coffee, I’d tell you to help yourself to a cup.  I’ve got some brewed up and it’s in its usual spot there on the counter.  I’ve also got some tea bags if that’s your thing, so feel free to hook yourself up.

I’m sorry for not getting it for you, but you see, I’m running a bit late.  The #WeekendCoffeeShare link up closes soon, so I’m typing away, a bit frantic even.  It wasn’t my plan to run so late, but alas, here we are.  The best laid plans and all that applies here.

We do have some Counting Crows playing, so not everything is frantic.  I find their music good and relaxing, often listening while writing.  Somehow, music in the background helps.  It’s strange to me, as it is a very big distraction if I’m trying to read.  (I prefer the quiet!)  Some things need not to be explained though.  Some things just are.

It was a busy weekend.  My daughter ran the first leg of a marathon relay.  (8 miles)  I wasn’t running, but I played my part, having her at the start at about 5:30 am for the 6:30 am start.

Her team did great and so did everyone who came out to support them and all the runners!  I give props to those who stood along the side of the roads to cheer on the runners because it was cold and windy.  Somewhere in the 30’s with 15 or so mph winds greeted all who came out Saturday.  Not ideal conditions, but you don’t know what the weather is going to be when you sign up for such a thing.

Kudos to all.  Especially the runners for not only running Saturday, but all the days leading up to race day!

So here we are, running late on Monday, still recuperating from the weekend.

I had hoped to get a third draft of my story done over the weekend.  It did not happen.  Perhaps this week.  I plan to let some people read this story before submitting.  That is a big step for me.  I have never done that before, opting to publish on the blog or submitting with only my eyes having seen the work.  I guess you could say that I’m shy like that.

Anyway, I guess I’ll let you go.  You can absolutely take a cup to go.  I’ll be needing to sleep soon, and should probably drink something besides coffee.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I’ll see you next week!

#WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up that is now hosted by Eclectic Alli. Check out her post for the week and maybe post a share of your own!

  1. Brrrr.. running in the cold.. Although I’m sure you stay warm from the activity.. I’m with you, I can’t read with background noise! When I write, I like to listen to instrumental music but it can’t have lyrics or I get distracted.. 🙂 Thanks for the coffee!
